Red Door Sprints Results (072909)

The event at the Red Door in Fremont is one of the final four, and what better way to celebrate than to award a bike for the winner of the evenings races?

The Red Door event took place on what was apparently the hottest day on record for Seattle… EVER.  Temperatures in the day were reported at 110 degrees in West Seattle.  This weather is foreign for many people in Seattle, where air conditioning seems like a silly thing to install in a bar.  22 people, myself included, raced last night at the Red Door, where a crowd of onlookers gave shouts of encouragement and were generally impressed with the setup.  A good amount of bar patrons, as well as bar employees took to the saddles, most in grudge matches.

The women’s final brought Nouela and Monica to the bikes, with Nouela coming in first with a time of 29.563.  Monica was right behind her with a 30.491.  Nouela took home some custom wrapped Soma “Major Taylor” handlebars wrapped by none other than “The Wizard” Devin, at Wright Bros. Cyclery.  Also attached was a gift certificate for labor on a wheelbuild.  Nice job.

The men’s final brought the ongoing rivalry of Kevin A. and Felix N. to a head.

Felix finished less than a half of one second in front of Kevin, winning the grand prize, a fixed gear bike!

    ha ha Rana, if it makes you feel any better, looks like there was a boy that was slower than you. =)

    I think the drinks help. I mean I had 2 beers and a valium and put up my best time to date.

    You know what you must do…..relax…..go to it!
